Savoring Summer

The air is crisp here and the temperature has dropped.  It's as if Mother Nature knows that school has started and September has arrived.  As we kiss our amazing summer good-bye, here are a few shots from our last week.  We enjoyed friends' birthday parties, a visit from our cousin Sparky, a last day at the Fair with our Rochester friends A & B and baby C, and a trip to the cabin.

Last family picture at the Fair.

B & A with our tower of cookies.  It was our 5th year in a row together at the Fair!
Must mean residency is almost over...

After the Fair, we headed North to the Cabin.
The view on the way to the cabin.  With corn this high, it must be September.

The last days of summer wouldn't be complete without roasting marshmallows.  We have read about Curious George roasting marshmallows, but little did the Bears know how fun it would be to actually try it ourselves!  

First, we roasted,

Then we assembled 
(notice the grahams and Hershey's cleverly cut in half!).

Then, we feasted!
E-Bear plans his attack.

Worth every gooey, messy bite.

You should have heard the chorus: "Mooooore?"  No wonder we call them S'mores :)

Finally, we cleaned up.  
When E-Bear is 20, I will still be seeing him like this:

And that, as they say, is a wrap.

Before officially signing off to summer (sniff, sniff!), I would like to thank one special guy who helped make mine so very special.  He has toiled through his first two TOUGH chief year rotations with grace and patience.  And he has helped me savor the moments and made lots of memories with us.

T, I love you.

Onto Fall!  Lots more fun to be made and enjoyed.  May God's blessings be upon us all.
